A sad but Important 30th Anniversary

Today marks 30 years since 14 young women were murdered at L'École Polytechnique in Montreal.

The Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women is recognizing the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

The Minister responsible for the Advisory Council says, “We remember and honour the women who lost their lives at École Polytechnique, and all women and girls who are impacted by gender-based violence.” Kelly Regan added, “These young women, full of life and promise, died simply because they were women.”

The provincial commemoration event will start at 9:45 in Halifax. Six Rivers Radio will pause at that time, at the Hope Centre in Pugwash, to remember. Additional events are being organized at Dalhousie University and elsewhere across the province.

Sara Evely, President of the Dalhousie Women in Engineering Society says, “December 6 means a lot of different things for many individuals, but for female engineering students it is a time of remembrance, empowerment and purpose. It's a day to reflect on how far we've come, and to honour those who have bravely pushed boundaries, and heroically broken boundaries.

The provincial government is investing $9 million in Standing Together to Prevent Domestic Violence, a four-year initiative led by the Nova Scotia Status of Women office. Standing Together involves working with community organizations and groups to support victims and to build a provincial plan to break the harmful cycles of domestic violence.
